The 35th edition of the Régates Royales – Trophée Panerai is set to take place from September 21st to 29th. Throughout the week, classic and vintage yachts, metric classes, Dragons, Requins and Broad One Design boats will gracefully unfurl their sails in the in the stunning backdrop of the Bay of Cannes.

From September 21st, the town of Cannes will welcome with open arms an array of Gaff rigs, schooners, cutters, sloops, yawls, J Class, one-designs and 12 Metre Class... the event will represent an exceptional gathering, with some of the biggest and most famous yachts from the last century like the the majestic Elena (55 metres, by Nathanaël Herreshoff), Cambria (40 metres, by William Fife), Mariquita (38,20 metres, by William Fife), Sunshine (38 metres, by William Fife Jr), the J Class Shamrock V (36,50 metres by Charles Nicholson) and the two Moonbeam III and Moonbeam IV (31 metres, by William Fife).

What better an occasion to admire the purity of the yacht lines, the shining woods and stylish and talented crew competing in such elegance? Like film stars, they will show off their flair and charm sailing off the îles de Lérins. Everyone will have the opportunity to watch them and be fascinated by these legendary yachts, many classed as part of historical maritime heritage, as they gracefully liven up the sea with colour and life.

The Dragons will rally to the world-famous bay this autumn for one of the most beautiful class gatherings where more than fifty boats are expected to compete with Russian reigning champion Anatoly Loginov (Annapurna) returning to defend his title. Anticipation for Les Régates Royales is already growing.

Cannes will see the return of the Metre classes this year. The 5, 5, 6, 8 and 12 IM metric classes will be back this year and will be accompanied by new classes like the Requins or the et Broad One Design (BOD).

In 2013, Cannes will celebrate the 35th edition of the revived Régates Royales, one of the oldest races since the first edition was held in 1929, in honour of King Christian X of Denmark. The Yacht Club de Cannes is also one of the oldest in France, having been founded in the spring of 1859 when Messieurs Béchard, Tripet-Skrypitzone de Colquhoum and Bucquet created the Société des Régates. The first racing event organised in the bay of La Napoule saw the likes of large yachts such as Léro, Olga, Jeannette and Touriste rally with smaller sailing yachts as well as several local fishermen's rowing boats

The Société des Régates de Cannes and the Yacht Club de Cannes have been organising the Régates Royales for over eight years. The event is supported by the Cannes municipality that once again will be an essential backer for the event and by main sponsor Panerai.
